Your holiday hair accessorizing can be done using anything from necklaces, spare ribbons and leather to sparkling hair clips, earrings and feathers. Working with materials that you can wrap into your hair, like leather or ribbon, will blend nicely with your locks.

When blending a lot of jewelry into your hair, be cautious not to overdue it. Jeweled holiday hair accessories usually only look good when placed on one side.
